EUGENE, OR (Apr. 30, 2020) – Burley and PeopleForBikes have teamed up to encourage bicycle transportation as a viable alternative form of commuting with the launch of a limited edition Travoy. During this time of social distancing, this urban cargo trailer offers a great solution for riders looking to easily transport all their essentials to and from work, as well as around town on essential errand runs, acting as the perfect bike accessory for urban mobility and local adventure. During these uncertain times, people are looking for alternative modes of transportation. As more and more people are switching to bikes, Burley is proud to collaborate with PeopleForBikes to contribute to making the transition from car to bicycle a seamless one. Jose Maldonado, director of marketing at PeopleForBikes, had this to say, “"Our staff of 25 dedicated individuals have been working remotely across the U.S. to continue supporting riders from all walks of life. While we’re all making the best of the opportunity to spend more time at home, our mission hasn’t changed — we’re still working to make biking better for everyone.” “We are wholehearted believers in and supporters of PeopleForBikes’ and the incredible work they are doing. We are proud to launch this limited-edition PeopleForBikes Travoy to further support their efforts nationally, by donating a portion of the proceeds from each unit sold to PeopleForBikes.” says Allison Straub, president of Burley. “The Travoy is designed to help make the shift from cars and public transportation to bicycles easy and more accessible. Both new riders and seasoned cyclists alike will be able to comfortably carry with them those things that matter most.” As part of this collaboration, Burley will be donating $30 from each PeopleForBikes Travoy sold to the PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program. The PeopleForBikes Community Grant provides funding for important projects that build momentum for bicycling in communities across the U.S. These projects include bike paths and rail trails, as well as mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives. The PeopleForBike Travoy is available exclusively on burley.com.
